How to obtain the X-Amzn-Trace-Id value

John Wade -

To aid with troubleshooting issues or obtaining any further information, we may request that you provide the X-Amzn-Trace-Id value whenever possible. This helps collate all relevant log entries and provides us with a complete journey of your request.

Core API responses consists of the body, headers, cookies, and the HTTP status code. The X-Amzn-Trace-Id key and value can be found amongst the headers of the response.

For example, using Postman, the X-Amzn-Trace-Id value can be found in the Headers tab of the results window:


Using Command Prompt or Terminal, the X-Amzn-Trace-Id value (and all other header values) can be returned by adding -v to the command as shown below.

curl -v --location "" --header 'Authorization: <your auth details>' --header 'x-api-key: <your x-api-key>'
